At the first annual Europe-U.S. Symposium, participants raised and discussed topics they saw as key for Europe and the U.S. The topics included the purpose of pension reform, the relation between the pension system and the economy, the need for transparency and consumer understanding of the pension system, changing the balance among the three pillars, the government role in the pension system, the problems of diversifying savings portfolios, and the need for portability. Cutting across these topics are various themes, such as the long time it takes to accomplish reform. A major theme of the discussion was how pension reform must reshape expectations.
